A fantasy adventure with a Western twist, when I saw the premise of Planet Land: The Adventures of Cub and Nash, I just knew I had to read this book. In this, the second volume in the Hidden Earth Series by author Janet Beasley, we find ourselves following our heroes, the titular Cub and Nash, as they navigate a world in the Wild, Wild West, but not quite the same as we're used to. The real adventure begins when a large hole appears in the dirt wall of the room that a group of friends are hiding out in to avoid being kissed by a girl at the Copper Junction Function, revealing a secret land that's been long forgotten, and Cub and Nash go through it!
This was a delightful book for the young adult reader. Mixing the realms of fantasy and Western is no easy feat, and I have to give mad props to author Janet Beasley for being able to do this so effectively. She is also skilled at developing fun characters that are completely relatable in Cub and Nash, and her world creating skills, especially for a young adult novel, are second to none. I thoroughly enjoyed Planet Land: The Adventures of Cub and Nash, and recommend this book to any reader, young adult or not, who would enjoy a fun, faced-paced and adventurous read that creatively combines Western and fantasy successfully. I certainly hope that author Janet Beasley is working on the next installment of this series, because this book was simply great!
